What are the fees and dues?

Equity is a self-supporting labor association, funded by members' dues and initiation fees that underwrite the administrative costs of running the Union. A one-time Initiation Fee is charged when you join Equity (or rejoin, if your membership has lapsed).

All membership privileges, including the right to vote, attend meetings and Equity-only auditions, commence upon the initial payment of $400 towards the fee (currently $1600) within six months of the filing of your application.

Dues: Equity dues have two components: Basic Dues, payable semi-annually in November and May; and Working Dues, which are deducted from your weekly gross earnings.
